Kane could increase his numbers when the Three Lions battle Italy for the continental title at Wembley Stadium this weekend.

Meanwhile, former Man United manager Jose Mourinho believes the penalty England got that gave them the victory was controversial.

Mourinho's analysis of England's penalty against Denmark

Although he agreed that Gareth Southgate's men did so much to deserve victory at the end of the game, he just didn't agree that Raheem Sterling could win a spot-kick with that move. The Special One told talkSPORT:

“England deserved to win but that’s never a penalty. At this level – a semi-final of the Euros I don’t understand the referee’s decision and the fact that VAR didn’t bring the referee into the screen.
“It’s never a penalty. I’m very happy England won, don’t get me wrong. They deserved to win but I am disappointed as a football man that was given.”

England will hope they can lift the European title for the first time in their history on home ground when they face Italy at Wembley Stadium on July 11.

What Wenger and Mourinho said about England's penalty vs Denmark

Legit.ng earlier reported that Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho found one thing to agree on after they both agreed that Raheem Sterling's penalty should not have stood.

Despite several seasons of antagonising each other in the Premier League, the legendary managers put their differences aside while analysing the call that handed England the win.

Harry Kane scored a rebound after Kasper Schmeichel initially denied his effort from the spot in the 104th minute to secure their passage to their first-ever European Championship final.
